Thomas Arthur Darvill, known professionally as Arthur Darvill, is an English actor and musician. He is perhaps most recognized as Rory Williams, one of the Eleventh Doctor's companions in Doctor Who (2005), and as Rev. Paul Coates in Broadchurch (2013). In 2013-2014 he appeared in the lead role in the theatre musical Once in the West End and on Broadway. Darvill's mother Ellie is an actress and during Arthur's early childhood she worked with masks, puppets and live acting as a member of Cannon Hill Theatre, which was based at Midlands Arts Centre, and toured Britain and the world. She is also known as the puppeteer and voice behind Why Bird from Playdays. Prior to the birth of his sister, Darvill went on some of the tours, helping with the setting up of the shows. His father Nigel played the Hammond organ for artists including Edwin Starr, Ruby Turner, Fine Young Cannibals and UB40. Darvill attended Bromsgrove School in Worcestershire from 1993 to 2000.
At the close of Cold Blood, Rory Williams took a shot intended for the Doctor. It was a selfless act, typical of a man so brave, so kind, so committed to his friends. Amy Pond may have forgotten Rory, but we never shall.
Rory was Amy's boyfriend, a straightforward sort of bloke who worked as a nurse. He grew up with Amy and when they were children she made him dress up as her 'raggedy Doctor'. That's why Rory entered the medical profession.
Rory displayed compassion and inquisitiveness, and as we saw, he was capable of great bravery and endurance. Throughout his travels in the TARDIS his love for Amy never faltered and he developed a friendship with the Doctor, although the Time Lord sometimes exasperated him.
Before the fateful events of Cold Blood, Rory saw an incredible universe - vast and varied and incredible. But Amy Pond always remained at the centre of his world.
